Exclamation And don't call me Shirley....or Coach

If you can believe this - the company where I work (in a manner of speaking) is entering two teams (one men's and one women's) in a local park district adult rec league. They asked me if I would be interested in coaching one or the other. I said no. They then asked me that if they could find someone else who was interested, would I "co-coach" (whatever that means). Again, I said no. They then asked me if they could find someone to head coach, would I be the assistant. Again, I said no. Maybe they're beginning to get the message.

OK, those of you who know me, can you imagine me coaching an adult rec team? I'd have to bench all my own players for conduct.

Exclamation

Mark Padgett,

I don't know you. However, I can see that you do not want to be a team player. Personally, I think it is a great opportunity to teach you fellow co-workers (teammates) how the game should be played properly. You should establish an understanding with the company that although, you are an official it does not give them the right to put you in an awkward situation. Nothing personal just an opinion.

If you did know me, you wouldn't be making your second statement.

What an opportunity ! The NPA ! You have trained all the offiicials and have house-broken all of the coaches. Don't stand in the shadows, but come out, ... into the light ! You may win a T-shirt !

Mark, this is true. I made that statement hoping it would cause you to observer the big picture. Because what Mick posted I agree with.

Mark, this is true. I was hoping you would reconsider. I could have tried a different approach. Please accept my apology.

So which is it? Did you want him to reconsider or to observer?

(Observer? I hardly knew 'er!)

I think Mr. Padgett probably owes some penance.

If you bench everyone for conduct it would be great. You can pull the Hackman and tell the official that your team is on the court. He'll turn around to one team. How classic would that be? You should do it just once. It might be good for the game, although I'm sure you'd lose a little sanity.

Regards,
I would direct you to ANY ESPN message board. I guarantee you will find posts that are far dumber than that one you cite. In fact, you could search the NFHS forum and look for anything JPRIMO posts or the McGriff board and hunt down JMO posts and you would see that your observation is pure hyperbole.
